I’ve had a Rip Van Winkle moment, and here I am after a long break! I’ve surfaced just in time to wish all my friends and gardening acquaintances a very Happy Christmas.
I hope that this Christmas is a good one for you all despite everything. Very likely, there’s a mixture of joy and sadness for so many families, but most of all I’m writing this with a hopeful heart.
Winter is a wonderful time of the year. I’m probably in a minority, but I do like it. I’m reminded to slow down, take things easy, wrap up and stay cosy with loved ones.
My friends will be very aware of my love/hate relationship with social media. I’m thankful that the elastic snapped a few months ago. I’m grateful for the joy of seeing like-minded gardeners but my continued use of FB and IG does not sit well with me. Thus, for the moment at any rate, my gardening updates will be here, and here alone.
As we face into another new year, I wish you happiness and good health.
